For the home’s in­te­ri­ors, the ar­chi­tects en­vi­sioned a touch of the rus­tic and the or­ganic, to coun­ter­bal­ance the clean white lines of the con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­tural style

in faux rat­tan line the in­fin­ity pool fac­ing the view, while a leaf-shaped lounger and a pair of stat­uesque yucca trees in ter­ra­cotta pots of­fer an or­ganic touch to the cov­ered pa­tio. Con­tem­po­rary black chairs with fem­i­nine lines com­pli­ment the heavy and mas­cu­line wooden din­ing ta­ble. Op­po­site, sit metal­lic cup-shaped stools at the bar.

For a re­fresh­ing vis­ual in­ter­est in the liv­ing room, the de­sign­ers chose an un­ob­tru­sive pair of sculp­tures on the man­tel­piece and a taller one re­sem­bling a tree on the stair­case land­ing. In the cen­tre of the room, re­flec­tive round cof­fee ta­bles are echoed by three rounded red arm­chairs that of­fer a sub­tle vis­ual fo­cus.

Be­yond all this how­ever, the true beauty of Jardim and Guedes’ ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior de­sign in this project lies in their ac­knowl­edge­ment that noth­ing can ever com­pare to the sur­round­ing serene land­scape. By fram­ing these mag­nif­i­cent blue vis­tas through­out the home, from the grand rooms for en­ter­tain­ing to the in­ti­mate bed­rooms and baths, they en­sure that the great­est artist of all—mother Na­ture— re­mains on per­ma­nent dis­play.
